A 2001 Missouri non-discrimination bill advanced to the House for the first time Monday, reports Towleroad.com.

The bill, reintroduced by Rep. Stephen Webber (D-Columbia), would extend discrimination protection to sexual orientation and make it illegal to discriminate employment, housing and accommodations, the article states.

A Republican-controlled legislature, however, makes the bill’s passage unlikely, the article speculates.

Webber, 26, is the youngest representative in the House and served two tours in Iraq.
